Greater Goods Organic Sprouted Brown Rice
During germination the nutrient composition of the rice changes dramatically. The nutrient levels increase and the rice has a slight nutty flavor.
The process of germination allows tiny sprouts to form at the end of the grain enhancing the nutritional value of the rice. The birth of a sprout activates dormant enzymes to provide nutrients to the growing sprout. A Japanese researcher, Dr. Hiroshi Kayahara from Shinshu University in Nagano, Japan, has conducted various studies to demonstrate the enhancement of nutrients found in germinated brown rice. Major nutrients that increase are Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), dietary fiber, inositol, ferulic acid, tocotrienols, magnesium, potassium, zinc and oryzanol. His research indicates that a continuous intake of germinated brown rice promotes the acceleration of brain functionality, preventing headaches, relieving constipation, preventing colon cancer, regulating blood sugar level, preventing heart disease, lowering blood pressure as well as preventing Alzheimer's disease (research presented at the 2000 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies in Hawaii, December 2000).
Germinating brown rice also neutralizes phytic acid found in brown rice. Phytic acid is an inhibitor of nutrient absorption and can be found in all grains, beans and seeds. Neutralizing the phytic acid allows for more absorption of the many nutrients found in germinated brown rice.
Very easy to cook and eat. No rinsing necessary. Best ratio is 2 C rice to 3 C water. Bring to a full rolling boil with lid on. Do not stir. Reduce heat and simmer 40 - 50 minutes depending on altitude. Remove from heat and let rest 10 minutes before fluffing with a wooden spoon.
Repackaged in a facility that also handles peanuts, tree nuts, wheat and soy.
